i want – Long Leather Skirt by Valentino

So, I was browsing The Coveteur earlier this week and came across Alana Zimmer’s profile. I met Alana this year at a party and we had a really nice conversation. At the end of this conversation, she gave me a hug. I was happily stunned and I’ve been a fan girl ever since. I’m looking at photos of Alana’s great New York City apartment and her clothing. There are two photos of her in a leather skirt that automatically catch my eye. Can you guess what got me excited? If you are a long time reader you probably guessed the…

i want: Leather Perforated Mini Skirt by Proenza Schouler

When I was younger I had so many mini skirts in my closet. Now I have two and I miss wearing them. It’s pretty pathetic. So I keep my eyes peeled and I love coming across unusual ones like this neon green perforated leather mini skirt by Proenza Schouler. Of course this piece is expensive, $1650 at Barneys. images:

I want – I got Editorials – Philip Sparks Spring 2013

A lot of bloggers love to the do the photoshoot of themselves thing. If you’ve been here long enough, you know that’s not my thing. I rarely post about my daily outfits because I honestly don’t find it or them interesting. For those of you that are curious about what I’m wearing, your best bets for glimpses are to follow me on twitter or instagram. You can search geekigirl to find me. So, I don’t like outfit posts and that kinda shit but I enjoy doing the occasional editorial. Some of these editorials I’ve organized and others I’ve just played…

i want: Iris Blue A-Line Skirt by Marni

Moda Operandi has expanded their online business and are offering a selection of in season fashions from their designer partners that are shipped immediately. No more waiting of the waiting game if that isn’t you type of thing. I love this Marni skirt. Not only is the Iris Blue colour wonderful it comes in my favourite skirt shapes, the a-line. The little peplum is super cute and very on trend. You can get the Iris Blue A-Line Skirt by Marni on images:

I want- I got’s H&M Conscious Collection Fall Winter 2011- 2012 Top Picks

I’m liking the new H&M Conscious Collection Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 collection. I picked up a few pieces from the Spring Summer 2011 collection and I see a few fall pieces that I like. This season the H&M Conscious Collection takes influences from romanticism and Swedish folklore.  The collection features recycled wool and organic fabrics like cotton , linen and hemp. The Conscious Collection collection uses embroidery and lace this season and I’m hoping they look good in person too. I’m never into H&M shoes but I love, love, love these booties. The Conscious collection will be available staring…

Alex & Eli Fall Winter 2011 – 2012

Alex & Eli is an American based brand created by two Parsons graduates, Aja Singer (who is Canadian) and Anne Zeman. Their focus is suiting for women with tailored silhouettes and unusual detailing. I knew Aja and Anne were after my heart when I started to read the style names. As an unapologetic Star Trek fan, I was delighted to see things like The Vulcan Blazer, Enterprise Pant, the Voyager Blazer, the Kirk (it’s a jacket), Transporter Skirt and the Replicator Jacket. It was doubly delightful that the clothing looked really good. Womenswear influenced by menswear with a modern twist,…

i want: Gap Spring Summer 2011

There are a few things from Gap’s spring summer 2011 collection I have my eyes on. I love the Pale Denim ruffle top. It reminds me of Lanvin a little bit. The Chambray denim hooded parka will be a good substitute for that Lanvin x Acne denim jacket I never bought. The white skirt is heavily influenced by Jil Sander’s spring summer 2011 silhouette. It wasn’t a silhouette that I liked at first but it has been growing.

i want: Haute Hippie feathered skirts

Dexter Skirt by Haute Hippie, Pheasant Feather Skirt by Haute Hippie I love these feathered skirts by Haute Hippie.  They are cute and playful but I wonder if they shed a lot.  They are available online at images:

i want: Jonathan Saunders silk skirt and shirt

Jonathan Saunders silk skirt and shirt I love this skirt and shirt combination by Jonathan Saunders. The draping on the skirt is fantastic along with the colour combination. It’s looks a lot better on Net-a-Porter than did it on the runway in the spring. Jonathan Saunders is actually available in Toronto at Scarlet Boutique.
